Short Description
Arch Linux base running AUR compiled version of get_iplayer
Full Description




get_iplayer has PVR-like capabilities (like Sky+ / TiVo / Series-Link); You can save lists of programme searches which are automatically recorded when they become available so that you can watch them when you choose and on devices that cannot run Adobe Flash Player – even if you don’t have adequate broadband speeds or if your broadband streams too slowly at peak hours when you want to watch a programme.

Build notes

Latest stable get_iplayer release from Arch Linux AUR.

This container doesn't include the ffmpeg/avconv required to convert the flv file, so its not really that useful, unless you just want a lot of .flv files

sure - i can add in something to allow the conversion.

Shows with spaces require a \ before the space or it doesn't work on Ubuntu, so it would look like...

-e SHOWS=Chuggington,Mike\ the\ Knight \

or alternatively wrap your show list in double quotes:-

-e SHOWS="Chuggington,Mike the Knight" should work
